via Heather Kuldell, reporting for DefenseOne, comes the sorry tale of the fundamental failure of information security capability, this time at the Department of Defense, and revolving around the lack of control of what bits are installed on the Department's networks worldwide. All this, via the latest Department of Defense Office of the Inspector General's Report, DoD Management of Software Applications DODIG-2019-037. Astounding.
via Lawrence Abrams, writing at his web property Bleeping Computer, comes superlative reportage, targeting flaws in the United States Ballistic Missle Defense establishment and Infrastructure. The news source? None other than the US Department of Defenses' "Inspector General's Report DODIG-2019-034 Security Controls at DOD Facilities for Protecting Ballistic Missle Defense System Technical Information". Just a Little Light Reading for the holidays, eh?
On the occasion of 118 years of Heroic Service to the United States of America we welcome the opportunity to extend our heartiest congratulations to the Men and Women of the United States Navy's Submarine Forces in their work to protect, defend and when necessary, take their warfighters to the battle or the battle to the enemy. Happy Anniversary!
